• Short Summary

    Rail fire brigade in Horwich that uses a steam train to get to emergencies.

  • Description

    Train fire brigade. Part of issue RAIL, ROAD AND SEA.

    Horwich, Greater Manchester.

    Various shots of firemen rushing to a fire. Instead of getting into a road fire engine the men get on board a steam train. The train chugs off down a track with firemen in wagons and driver's cabin. At the scene of the fire, we see them unwinding hoses that are attached to a water tank behind the train's engines. We see the hoses in use. Looks like demonstration for benefit of cameras - no flames or smoke can be seen.
